Members gathered for a study session for adults to learn the basics of coaching.
Our activities usually revolve around working with children, with adults playing the role of a facilitator who watches over the process while valuing the children’s autonomy. Coaching, on the other hand, is a skill that encourages children to discover their purpose and take voluntary action through dialogue. Although we don’t set goals and objectives for the children’s activities, the idea of coaching and the mindset can be useful in encouraging spontaneity, and I’ve always been curious about coaching!
The coach was Tamae Suda, a member and representative of NICO, a coaching service. We studied the basics of coaching, including the origins of coaching, the relationship between client and coach, and what coaching aims to achieve, as well as examples of coaching interactions.
